Simple Burp Cloths
We went through so many burp cloths when our son was young. As a result, I try to give them whenever possible. This newest batch was about half-yard of fabric cut into four pieces. Each piece was about 12" by 6". To make them, I rolled the edges under (you are free to press here). Then I stitched the edge, sewing from the back side and lifting the presser foot with the needle down at each corner. The corners are made by rolling one edge over the other, already rolled, edge.
I decided not to line these with terry so that they would be smaller and more portable. Also, flannel is fairly absorbent on its own and makes for a good cloth. The size is just about right to cover one shoulder. Any cotton would do well here.
